It’s not about that. It’s about preventing the NHS from being brought to its knees which has knock on impacts. It’s fine to say oh my chance of death is 0.0-0.1% so I’m fine, but when the national healthcare system has collapsed and you can’t get any healthcare then those people won’t be so care free all of a sudden?Ultimately, they’re only putting themselves at risk as the likelihood of death is literally 0.0-0.1% for everyone aged 70 or below.
Also worth pointing out that when the NHS gets to the point that it can’t cope by the very fact that they can’t cope that likelihood of death figure will begin to go up. The figure is not a line in the sand, it’s a figure based on current circumstances.It’s not about that. It’s about preventing the NHS from being brought to its knees which has knock on impacts.

To use your own assumed likelihood of death % to make a decision not to get a vaccine is, IMHO, selfish as fuck.
They aren't. You may need a vaccine for certain jobs, that was already the case pre-covid.First, the government doesn’t have the right to force people to get the vaccine.
They do now and I have seen to nothing to suggest mandatory vaccines will be enforced for the general population in the future.Second, individuals have the right to choose whether or not to vaccinated.
Its for the government to put a system in place that enforces any vaccine passport requirements. In fact this is part of the argument in favour of vaccine passports. At the moment the government guidelines to venues is to check vaccination and / or test status but there have been reports of issues with enforcement as there are no official rules so they are having to accept things like text messages showing negative results.A vaccine passport regime probably won’t be enforced
What keeps being missed is its not a case of some people being restricted if vaccine passports are introduced against everyone being fine to go about life as usual. There are millions of people who are restricted at the moment because they are following official government advice to avoid places where there is likely to be unvaccinated people. The vast majority of those people have no choice in the matter where as anyone declining to use a vaccine passport would be doing so by choice.Nobody's forcing people to get a vaccine though - just they're the ones restricted in what they can do slightly, in order that the majority don't find their liberties restricted more extremely in a full lockdown... that will include unvaccinated people anyway.
